point. you are absolutely right that nra members are not necessarily in sync with the impression that nothing could happen on guns. about a year ago, republican pollster frank luntz conducted a poll of nra members and found overwhelming support for common sense regulations like universal background checks. 40% of guns are sold at gun shows or through the internet. there is an overwhelming number of nra members, gun owners, and just the general public who support these provisions. as well, the high capacity magazines to over 60% of americans, including gun owners, support limiting those high capacity magazines. it is a question of just some lore that has built up since 1994, when, after bill clinton got the assault weapons ban through, he lost his majority in the house, and the democrats have been essentially scared of the issue since then. but i think, you know, as part of this new strategy of winning public pressure to bear things done, it is possible that if the democrats and some moderate republicans continue to highlight these numbers, many americans, including gun owners, su
